Rihanna’s “Umbrella” vs. Chris Brown’s “CInderella”

This week we talked about how different words or lyrics can be set to the same tune, and give a different meaning to the song. Thats why I chose to do my post on Rihanna’s song vs. Chris Brown’s song. In Rihanna’s song she is singing about protecting someonoe that she loves saying, “baby you can stand under my umbrella-a-a-a” and in the Chris Brown remake of this song, hes talking about finding his one true love when he sings, “Im looking for the one with the glass slipper, babygirl you can be my cinderella-a-a-a”. These two songs although have the same melody have completely different meanings. I like both versions of the song, enjoy!

lyrics

Chris Brown:
you’re becoming a dream to me
a fairytale fantasy
nothing can never compare
your name is to my memory

and girl I’m asking could you be my queen?
a vision on a magazine
thats when ill be there
its something we both share
[because]
when the sun shine well shine together
you know ill be here forever
although its alot of rain outside
girl its gettin late and you can stay the night
but you can dip out anytime whenever
i can call a car i aint tryna stress ya I’m looking for the one with the glass slipper
baby girl you can be my cinderella (ella ella eh eh eh)
you can be my cinderella (ella ella eh eh eh)
you can be my cinderella (ella ella eh eh eh)
you can be my cinderella (ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)

you can run into my arms

[Rihanna]
its okay don’t be alarmed

[Chris Brown & Rihanna]
come here to me

[Rihanna]
there no distance inbetween

[chris brown]
so gon and say my name some more

[Rihanna]
ill be all you need and more

[because]

[Rihanna]
When the sun shines
We’ll shine together
Told you I’ll be here forever
said I’ll always be your friend
took an oath I’m stick it out til the end

[Chris Brown]
but you can dip out anytime whenever
i can call a car i aint tryna stress ya I’m lookin for the one with glass slipper
baby girl you can be my cinderella (ella ella eh eh eh)
under my umbrella (ella ella eh eh eh)
you can be my cinderella (ella ella eh eh eh)
under my umbrella (ella ella eh eh eh eh eh eh)
